Jackets CHL Player Update

Western Hockey League

Shane Bendera – G – Red Deer Rebels
Shane Bendera was one of two Columubs goaltending prospects to be named to Canada’s World Junior Tryout for the 2002 World Junior Championships. He made it up until the final cut, where Pascal Leclaire and Olivier Michaud were selected over him. Since the November 30th update, Bendera has struggled a bit. His GAA has jumped from a 2.03 to a 2.28. He has also gone winless in his last 3, bumping his record to 11-6-3. His .926 SV% has dwindled down to a .918. He remains second in the league in GAA, and third in SV%.

Ben Knopp – RW – Kamloops Blazers
Benn Knopp is now a Kamloops Blazer. Strongly desired and readily available from the Moose Jaw Warriors, Kamloops dealt Lwer Derek Krestanovich and a 3rd round pick in the 2002 Bantam Draft. Knopp will be meeting up with AJHL teammate Tyler Sloan. While the trade has not helped Knopps +/- rating, which now sits at –16, his offense has hit the skids which is a greater cause for concern. In his last ten games, Knopp has managed one goal and 3 assists, to push his totals to 33 points(18-15-33) in 39 games. Given some time to get used to his Blazer teammates, and Knopp should regain the scoring touch that has him highly touted by the Blue Jackets Organization.

Kiel McLeod – C – Kelowna Rockets
Kiel has continued to keep his own pace that he set for himself early in the season. His production has tailed off only slightly, from 1.22 PPG down to 1.20. He sits beh Read more»

New Jersey Devils NCAA Prospect Update

An update that will look at the development of Future Devils competing in the WCHA, CCHA and Hockey East

1.) David Hale, Defense, North Dakota, sophomore year

North Dakota has had a tough spell over the last month going 3-4-1, including four straight loses between WCHA rivals MSU-Mankato and Wisconsin. Hale is playing well defensively with the Fighting Sioux, as he is one of their top three blueliners. In their last game before the Christmas break, David tallied an assist on Chris Fournier’s game winning goal, he was also a +3 on the day. Hale’s offensive production is not what makes him so valuable to North Dakota. David is a large, stay at home defensemen can physically punish a team, clear the net, work along the boards and participate on the occasional special team assignment.

2001/02 stats: 16 games, 1 g, 2 a, 33 PIM

2.) Paul Martin, Defense, University of Minnesota, sophomore year

With the exception of the Mariucci Classic, Minnesota will have about a month off between games. In a win against Denver, Paul was left all alone on the side of the net and put away first goal of the game in a 2-1 win. Martin has been very strong for the Gophers in the last month. He is playing on the number one power play unit. Paul still needs to add some extra weight and develop a physical presence in front of the net and along the board instead of totally relying on his pure skill and talent. Paul has twenty points on the current season. It took him all 37 g Read more»

Canadian Hockey League News and Notes

The Acadie-Bathurst Titan of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League continues
to top the Bank of Montreal MasterCard CHL Top 10 rankings in Week 11.

Despite having their 20-game unbeaten snapped at Rimouski on Friday night,
the Titan continue to lead the Bank of Montreal MasterCard CHL Top 10
rankings, selected by a panel of NHL scouts, for the fourth consecutive
week. Acadie-Bathurst has been in the rankings for eight of the 11 weeks the
poll has been conducted this season.

The Titan continues to lead the overall QMJHL standings and have the most
victories and best winning percentage of any CHL team. The 20-game unbeaten
run was the longest by far this season in the CHL.

The Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League hang on to second place in
the weekly rankings, picking up a couple of ties this week. The Whalers lead
the OHL in winning percentage and points and have just five losses in 34
games this season.

Prince George Cougars of the Western Hockey League were the team on the move
in this week’s rankings, moving into third place in the weekly poll, up from
sixth. With another two wins this past week, the Cougars have been one of
the hottest teams in the CHL in the past month since first cracking the Bank
of Montreal MasterCard CHL Top 10 list four weeks ago.

There were no teams on last week’s Top 10 list that didn’t make the list
this week, but a few teams switched positions. Still in fourth spot are the
Shawinigan Cataractes of the QMJHL, with the Barrie Colts of the OHL moving
up one spot, from sixth to fifth, Read more»

Canadian Junior Goaltending Situation Established

by Aaron Vickers

Leclaire On The Roster, Bendera Left Off

The backend will be strong come Christmas for the Canadian World Juniors with strong defense. Their goaltending wont be too shabby either. Saturday morning the Canadian Junior Hockey squad made their final cuts, which involved releasing two goaltenders. One of which was Blue Jacket prospect Shane Bendera.

The release of Red Deer Rebel goalie Shane Bendera and Ray Emery of the SOO Greyhounds left two QMJHL goaltenders to tend the pipes in the Czech Republic; Olivier Michaud and future teammate of Bendera, Pascal Leclaire. Many had thought that the play of Shane Bendera would measure a CBJ duo in net of Leclaire/Bendera, but that will obviously not be the case.

“I’m a little disappointed, but not mad,” Bendera said, “It was pretty hard last night. I dont think any of us(goaltenders) slept. We knew two goalies were getting cut so it’s pretty hard.” Speculation was that Bendera gave up too many rebounds, something the Canadian Junior brass did not seem to take too kindly to.

That leaves Pascal Leclaire as the sole representative for the Columbus Blue Jackets organization after Bendera, and defensemen Aaron Johnson and Cole Jarrett were released. Pascal Leclaire played his way onto the squad, displaying the skills that made him the top goalie selected in the 2001 draft. His play may very well warrent him the starting role at the World Junior Olympics.

Capitals goaltending prospect Sebastien Charpentier

by Caitlin LoCascio
on

Most ECHL fans know the name Sebastien Charpentier, and for good reason. In 1998 he won the Kelly Cup Championship with the then Hampton Roads Admirals, and was named the Playoff MVP. A year before, he had led goaltenders in the QMJHL for games played, minutes, and wins.

When he made the transition to the AHL’s Portland Pirates three years ago, everything changed. Chronic arthritis and a leg injury resulted in him having to sit out for months at a time. During the 1999-2000 season, Charpentier missed 49 games in a row.

During the past couple years, he would have a game here or there that was very good. But those were few and far between. And it was clearly more than just overcoming injury. Inconsistency, a lack of confidence, and an inadequate game mentality were all there too. One of his ‘shining’ moments was the Pirates’ final game of the playoffs last season. Charpentier made 50-something saves, and showed some absolutely brilliant goaltending, and yet, the two goals that he did let in during regulation were arguably the two easiest shots to stop in the entire game.

Then came this season.

Like so many of the other prospects in the Capitals’ organization, Sebastien Charpentier has not played this well in a very long time, if ever. He is healthy, the arthritis is not bothering him, but more importantly, he has his game back. He has been consistently wonderful for the past few weeks, and that is a huge step in the right direction for him. Two shutouts in the space a couple weeks was unheard of for him the past couple years. One si Read more»
